Best Fencing System - Which is the Best Fencing System?
Planning your property’s fence is the key to a secure and private boundary - you need to understand fence post locations, the number of fence panels required, and how each component will be installed for a long-lasting solution.
Alongside these measurements, markings, and technical plans, you need to understand which fencing materials will offer your property the very best result. But what does this ‘best result’ look like?
When it comes to fencing, there are three main deliverables we tend to base our decision on. These are the aesthetics, durability, and value of the solution.
So, in order to achieve a good-looking, durable, and cost-effective fence, what exactly should you be looking for? Here, we explore what makes a good fencing system to help you understand the difference in quality between your fencing options.
Life expectancy of a fence
Everyone loves a bargain, but when you compare the life expectancy of a cheap fence versus a more expensive option, it quickly becomes clear why budget can be real blockage to buying a good fence.
Often, a cheap fence will start to weaken and need replacing in as little as 2-5 years. A more premium option however can last beyond 25. So, by doing a little working out on the numbers, you will find it works out more economical in the long run to go for a better-quality product. After all, you get what you pay for.
The quality and integrity of materials used
From fence panels, posts and gates, through to gravel boards and other fencing accessories, the materials used, alongside the construction of each element play a vital role in the quality of your fence.
For example, fence posts act as the support structure for your entire fence. If these are of poor quality, weak, or prone to wear and tear, you could find yourself needing to replace them quicker than expected.
A stable, long-lasting fence post system will give your fence the foundation it needs to remain secure. Even through harsh weathering, strong winds, and mild storms, the right solution will continue to protect your property for many years to come.
In the eyes of many homeowners, a good fencing system should be installed and simply forgotten about. No frequent maintenance, repairs, or paint re-applications, just a secure fence that looks great from installation, and with minimal effort needed to keep it that way.
Matching fence accessories
Your fence is the first thing that people see when entering your garden. It covers the entire boundary of your outside space, and is typically 6 feet in height.
Given its size, you want your fencing to not only look great, but match the style of your home too.
Fencing accessories in a range of colours can offer you the ability to customise your fence just how you want it. From post caps to capping rails, gravel boards, and more, matching the colour and style of each accessory will give your fence a complete and collective feel.
